St. Louis BBQ Pork Steaks

The smell of BBQ sauce makes my mouth water.  A famous St. Louis BBQ Sauce is made by Maull.   I couldn't find Maull's in my neck of the woods so I researched and found a few recipes, and revised this one to make it my own.

Pork steaks are taken from the shoulder of the pig, and is a tender cut (and inexpensive for those of us on a budget).    They are typically seared and dry roasted on a grill but I braised them in my 5.5 quart LeCreuset French Oven, and finished the cooking process in a 350' oven.   They were delicious!

St. Louis BBQ Pork Steaks
  • 1 can (15 oz.) tomato sauce
  • 1/2 can light beer  (feel free to drink the remaining beer left in the can)
  • 4 T A.1 Steak Sauce
  • 4 T brown sugar
  • 1 T cider vinegar
  • 1 T Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teas. garlic powder
  • 3-4 drops hot sauce
  • 1/2 teas. liquid smoke
  • 6 pork steaks
Heat 2 T olive oil in dutch oven or large skillet.  
Season pork steaks with fresh black pepper and brown, reserve on platter until all are brown.  Remove from pan.

Whisk together tomato sauce, A.1, brown sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, hot sauce and liquid smoke in a bowl.  

Return pork steaks to dutch oven or baking dish.   Pour BBQ sauce over the steaks, cover and bake at 350' for 1 1/2 hours.  
Skim fat from sauce, serve sauce with the steaks.
